Santa Claus and his elves were also on hand to help officiate the ceremony and light the 50 ft. Christmas tree adorned with festive Christmas decorations. Santa Claus surprised the crowd by ditching his sleigh for a ride on the FlightlineZ (zip line) along with a few of his elves. After the Tree lighting, Candy and the Canes entertained the crowd with festive holiday music.
